Ist unabhängiges Dokumentarfilmschaffen im Kaschmirkonflikt möglich? Über den Fokus auf Mobilität zeigt Max Kramer neue theoretische und methodische Zugänge zur Erforschung von filmischen Praktiken in Konfliktregionen auf. Er argumentiert, dass die Herstellung von Zeugenschaft zunehmend auf verschiedene Momente von Mobilität bezogen ist. Die vorgeschlagene Forschungsperspektive nimmt nicht nur auf die umkämpften Repräsentationen und Narrationen von Konfliktregionen Bezug, sondern ebenso auf affektive und ästhetische Momente dokumentarfilmischer Praktiken.

The Representation of Memory from the Art Film to Transnational Cinema

Since its inception, cinema has evolved into not merely a ‘reflection’ but an indispensable index of human experience – especially our experience of time’s passage, of the present moment, and, most importantly perhaps, of the past, in both collective and individual terms. In this volume, Kilbourn provides a comparative theorization of the representation of memory in both mainstream Hollywood and international art cinema within an increasingly transnational context of production and reception. Focusing on European, North and South American, and Asian films, Kilbourn reads cinema as providing the viewer with not only the content and form of memory, but also with its own directions for use: the required codes and conventions for understanding and implementing this crucial prosthetic technology — an art of memory for the twentieth-century and beyond.

The Routledge Companion to Latin American Cinema is the most comprehensive survey of Latin American cinemas available in a single volume. While highlighting state-of-the-field research, essays also offer readers a cohesive overview of multiple facets of filmmaking in the region, from the production system and aesthetic tendencies, to the nature of circulation and reception. The volume recognizes the recent "new cinemas" in Argentina, Brazil, Chile, and Mexico, and, at the same time, provides a much deeper understanding of the contemporary moment by commenting on the aesthetic trends and industrial structures in earlier periods. The collection features essays by established scholars as well as up-and-coming investigators in ways that depart from existing scholarship and suggest new directions for the field.

Länger als jede andere Generation werden wir alt sein, und die meisten von uns ahnen nur wenig davon, was auf sie zukommt. Dieses Buch bietet einen tiefen Einblick in einen unbekannten Kontinent, die real existierende Welt des Älterwerdens. Zahlreiche Fallbeispiele, O-Töne und Beobachtungen bringen uns nahe, welche Themen den Alltag, die Gedanken und die Gefühle von älter werdenden Menschen charakterisieren. Wie gestalten sich Paarbeziehung und Liebesleben? Hängt es vom Zufall ab, ob ich einsam werde? Verändert sich meine Persönlichkeit? Erkenne ich meine altersbedingten Defizite? Was wird aus meinem sozialen Umfeld? Kann ich mich auf den körperlichen Sinkflug einstellen? Wie ist das mit dem unausweichlichen Ende? Und ist das Alter etwas, vor dem man sich fürchten muss, oder gibt es auch gute Gründe, sich darauf zu freuen? Das Buch zeigt, wie man die unausweichlichen Themen erkennt, damit geplatzte Träume, alte Wunden oder falsche Erwartungen aus den «Best-Agern» keine enttäuschten Alten werden lassen. Denn es gibt viele Möglichkeiten, die Weichen richtig zu stellen und sein Leben so zu gestalten, dass man durchaus Lust aufs Älterwerden und das Alter verspürt.

SCMS Award Winner "Best Edited Collection" The standard analytical category of "national cinema" has increasingly been called into question by the category of the "transnational." This anthology examines the premises and consequences of the coexistence of these two categories and the parameters of historiographical approaches that cross the borders of nation-states. The three sections of World Cinemas, Transnational Perspectives cover the geopolitical imaginary, transnational cinematic institutions, and the uneven flow of words and images.

Mit einem Geleitwort von Stéphane Hessel und einem Nachwort von Bernd Witte! »Langsam durch belebte Straßen zu gehen, ist ein besonderes Vergnügen. Man wird überspült von der Eile der andern, es ist ein Bad in der Brandung.« So beginnt Franz Hessels Spazieren in Berlin, das 1929 erstmals erschien, und heute so nah am Zeitgeist ist wie damals: Als Flaneur schlendert Hessel durch das lärmende Berlin, läuft über Plätze, durch Straßen, Fabriken und Parks, besucht den Osten mit seinen Hinterhöfen und Markthallen, den Westen mit seinen Nachtcafés und macht die Berliner Stadtlandschaft in ihrem einzigartigen Zauber erlebbar.

Cinematic products in the twenty-first century increasingly emerge from, engage with, and are consumed in cross-cultural settings. While there have been a number of terms used to describe cinematic forms that do not bear allegiance to a single nation in terms of conceptualization, content, finance and/or viewership, this volume contends that "crossover cinema" is the most apt contemporary description for those aspects of contemporary cinema on which it focuses. This contention is provoked by an appreciation of the cross-cultural reality of our post-globalization twenty-first century world. This volume both outlines the history of usage of the term and grounds it theoretically in ways that emphasize the personal/poetic in addition to the political. Each of the three sections of the volume then considers crossover film from one of three perspectives: production, the texts themselves, and distribution and consumption.
